A wine resort housed
in an 18th-century farm
Located on top of a plateau 210 metres above sea level in the so-called “100 Farms Area” of Crispiano, Masseria Amastuola is surrounded by approximately 170 hectares of land, mostly cultivated with vineyards, with olive trees and dry stone walls.
Amastuola is a farm with enclosed courtyard, which means that it has a large inner courtyard that can be accessed through two main doors; to the south, a small door reveals an evocative view of the gulf. In this overwhelming scenario, the wine resort offers accommodation in comfortable and finely furnished rooms, a vineyard-garden and a cellar that holds all the self-produced organic wines.
The value of the farm itself too is indisputable: the first existing document in which it is mentioned is an Inventory of the properties of Giovanni Antonio Orsini, prince of Taranto, written in the first half of the 15th century, in which it is listed among the assets of the Italo-Greek Abbey of San Vito del Pizzo in Taranto.
Utmost attention to details
for a place full of charm
The project of the farm arose with the intention of creating a reference point for lovers of wine, good cuisine and the beautiful landscapes of Apulia.
The conservative restoration carried out in the farm allowed to renovate it without altering its internal spaces and the materials originally used and, therefore, to actually preserve as much as possible both the original materials and the original layout of the building.
The wine resort, located in the rural district (Contrada dell’Agro) of Crispiano, has two tasting rooms, eighteen rooms, including four suites, a barrel room and a finely furnished restaurant.
